The State of North Carolina (NC) has received a federal disaster declaration for Public Assistance (PA) Category A (Debris Removal) and Category B (Emergency Protective Measures) for 28 counties in eastern and central NC.  The declaration date is September 14, 2018, with an event incident period of September 7, 2018 and continuing.  The disaster number is FEMA-4393-DR-NC, and includes the following counties: Beaufort, Bladen, Brunswick, Carteret, Columbus, Craven, Cumberland, Duplin, Greene, Harnett, Hoke, Hyde, Johnston, Jones, Lee, Lenoir, Moore, New Hanover, Onslow, Pamlico, Pender, Pitt, Richmond, Robeson, Sampson, Scotland, Wayne, and Wilson.  Additional counties are being assessed for damages and will be considered to become part of this declaration.


The first step in the process is for all potentially eligible Public Assistance (PA) Applicants (e.g., local governments, state agencies, private non-profits (PNPs), tribal organizations) in declared counties to attend an Applicant Briefing at one of the dates/locations listed above.  At the briefing, potential applicants will receive an overview of the Public Assistance program/process, any event-specific details, and instructions on how to submit the “Request for Public Assistance (RPA),” including PNP documents, the online PA Grants Portal.


The new PA Grants Portal will offer the Applicant the opportunity to review, manage, sign (e-signature), submit documentation for project worksheets, and provide full transparency of project status.  The RPA is the application required to become an eligible applicant in order to receive reimbursement for eligible response and recovery costs incurred as a direct result of Hurricane Florence.  For those unable to attend the Applicant Briefing, they may inquire about the PA Grants Portal by emailing public.assistance@ncdps.gov.


Houses of Worship (HOWs) owned or operated by private nonprofits (PNPs) organizations may now be eligible applicants for financial assistance for repair or replacement of facilities damaged or destroyed as a result of Hurricane Florence. 

Upon receipt of the RPA and FEMA’s approval of the application, FEMA will then begin conducting Exploratory Calls with each Applicant to begin discussing damages and schedule a Recovery Scoping Meeting (RSM) to continue to identify all eligible damages and costs for each Applicant and begin project formulation for reimbursement.


Please be advised that this list will be updated as the Counties are available for the Briefings.  Thank you for assisting with the outreach.  Please plan to attend an Applicant Briefing in your county to ensure that each applicant is accounted for in that county.
